Event description

Description

The Centre for Networks and Enterprise (CNE) at Edinburgh Business School are hosting a workshop on Network Analysis. Everyone is welcome to attend, so please pass the details on to anyone who may be interested.


Social Network Analysis for Ego-Nets

Instructor: Dr Elisa Bellotti (The University of Manchester).

The workshop focuses on research design and data analysis using egonets. The students will be firstly introduced to the concept of egonets and its theoretical foundations. We will then focus on egonets data collection using both quantitative and qualitative tools, and egonets analysis using Ucinet (Borgatti, S.P., Everett, M.G. and Freeman, L.C. 2002. Ucinet 6 for Windows: Software for Social Network Analysis. Harvard, MA: Analytic Technologies). Case studies from empirical research will be used to illustrate egonets research design and how to use the analytical tools in a concrete empirical context. A series of hands-on exercises will help the students to familiarize with data collection tools and the software. Students are required to bring their own laptop (in case the workshop is not run in a computer lab) with a trial version of Ucinet installed.

Suggested readings:

Crossley N., Bellotti E., Edwards G., Everett M. G., Koskinen J., Tranmer M., 2015, Social Network Analysis for egonets, Sage, London.


The Workshop will take place at Heriot-Watt University EM183 (Earl Mountbatten Building), 09:00-16:00. There will be an hour break for lunch. Please meet at EBS from 08:15-08:45 for arrival teas & coffees and registration. We will then walk across to the workshop suite.
